Our Hygienist is available to see patients for preventative measures such as oral hygiene advice, smoking cessation, fluoride applications, diet advice and scaling and polishing. Improving a patient’s oral hygiene means they are less prone to dental issues or reduced risk of disease and can also help prepare them for more advanced dentistry procedures from our specialists.
